A cold but bright sunny day. I don’t think it got barely in the low 50’s. When we walked this morning everything including trees and bushes were frosted over.
I baked the Tartine walnut kalamata olive loaves and they turned out beautiful and delicious.
The above picture is my starter( Tart) and she’s really lovely.
Here’s my December menu plan. I fill in the regulars like Taco Tuesday and Pizza night and then see what is in freezer /pantry. I don’t make the menu on the day except for the regulars so like spaghetti might be listd on the 7th but was made on the 14th. It jsut depends. Holidays I do keep to the menu since that’s different.
Tonight though we’re having a frittata and that’s not even on there because I have an abundance of eggs. So flexibility is the key.
We( California) are on stay at home orders so even going to the big stores seems risky. I went down to our Holiday Market this morning and was going for milk and some other things and totally forgot the milk. Go figure. I guess I ‘ll go again in a few days. I did get 1/2 and 1/2 so that will suffice.
We just found out our neighbor has covid along with his lady friend. So that has me completely freaked as they don’t really go anywhere. He said( on Facebook) he thought it was Costco but I don’t know. Costco is pretty safe unless maybe he went when it was really packed. Scary:( Hopefully they will be ok.
This week we are in the bedroom zone if you follow FL. I did most of it this morning but I still need to dust and tidy up the closet some. I took all the Christmas stuff out of the closet and put it under the tree so the closet isn’t so stuffed.
So tomorrow night is the big conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter. I looked last night and it was behind some big pines so I’m not sure we’ll have a good view. I’m going out tonight to check again. I have an app on my phone that locates stars and constellations so I found them but they were not obvious to me. If you have a clear view I imagine it’s impressive.
This week is low key with Christmas and all. No appts so just the same old same old.

That bread is absolutely gorgeous. And Kalamata walnut — what’s not to like? I haven’t ventured into sourdough yet.
I see there are several Tartine cookbooks — which one would you recommend?
I have the first one that’s called Tartine. I’d like to get one of the others soon.
I tried it on a whim and wow, I was surprised!
Gosh, your bread looks delicious.
It really is!! I’m kind of surprised:)
Your loaf looks perfect, that is a favorite bread for me.
It really turned out great.
